What’s the weather like in The Gambia in October?

A ‘something a bit different’ holiday
You don’t have to soak up the sunshine from around a pool or at the beach, why not hop across the Gambian border into Senegal, and visit Fathala Wildlife Reserve? Although there is a plunge pool for when you need a refreshing dip, opting for a game drive around the reserve is a fantastic day out. See rhinos, giraffes, monkeys and more, before heading back to your luxury safari tent. October half term from £1249pp. This can also be included as a 3 or 4-night add-on to a Gambia holiday.
Luxury, air-conditioned safari tents
